Ross Furniture wants you to be happy with the look of your new wood furniture for years to come, so we want to give you a few tips on the proper care and maintenance of your investment.

For beautiful, long-lasting furniture, check out these tips on how to care for your new wood furniture:

1. Dusting – Dust is a natural enemy to your furniture as it can create microscopic scratches that dull the finish overtime. To help prevent premature wear, dust at least once a week with a soft, clean cloth that won’t scratch your furniture and will pick up dust, rather than spread it around.

2. Cleaning – You’ll want to give your furniture a good cleaning if you use it frequently (such as a kitchen table which should be cleaned every week.) Water and detergent are too harsh for many wood surfaces, so be sure to use a wood cleaner which is an ideal way to remove built up grime and fingerprints. Spray the wood cleaner on a clean, soft cloth and wipe the surface in the direction of the wood grain.

3. Polishing – To restore luster to your finish, polish your wood regularly (at least twice a month.) Use a product that doesn’t contain waxes or silicone as these materials can leave residues that affect your furniture’s finish. Apply polish to a soft, clean cloth and wipe the furniture in the direction of the wood grain.
